Chelsea Yellowtail

Chelsea Rae Yellowtail Toineeta, passed away on February 6, 2021. She adored her children Dante’, Winston Blake, Autumn and Ramone Toineeta. She was born in Sheridan, Wyoming on February 19, 1993 a daughter of Dixie Yellowtail and Robin Toineeta. 

She attended elementary school in Ranchester and Sheridan, Wyoming, middle and high school in Billings, Montana.  She earned her GED in Sheridan, Wyoming. She was employed as a laborer at a warehouse. She enjoyed working and was eager to learn new skills was super excited when she learned she was being trained to work the forklift. 

She was a member of Mercy and Grace Ministry. She especially loved making crazy tik-tok and dance videos entertaining and making others laugh. Her most popular video was the COVID video.  She brought life to an empty room but was never afraid to tell you like it is.  She loved all her brothers and sisters and had a special bond with each one of them. She was a jokester and loved playing pranks on others. She recently just got her own place and was so happy and excited to share her new space with those she loved! She adored her children Dante’, Winston Blake, Autumn and Ramone Toineeta. She took all of her nieces and nephews as her own and enjoyed taking them on her crazy adventures. She was also never far from her mother’s side. Chelsea was a dedicated mother to her children and nieces and nephews.  She enjoyed taking them fishing, to the park, and their favorite hangout Chuckie Cheese.  She loved the outdoors fishing and swimming in the river was a highlight for her and her family.  Anyone who knew Chelsea knew there was not a whole lot she was afraid of.  She would take on any job and excel at it. She would have made a great forklift operator. 

Ever since she lost her son, Winston Blake, she was never the same. She longed to be with him again. She frequently visited his grave site and lit balloons in his memory especially on his birthdays. We are sure she is at peace now that she has joined her precious son. It is a comfort to know she is reunited with her son and with her Lord and Savior.
